HEC, iA partner on sustainable finance research

The HEC Montréal Foundation and iA Financial Group have struck a partnership to support sustainable finance research at HEC. The financial group has pledged $1M over ten years to support the newly-renamed iA Financial Group Chair in Sustainable Finance and to strengthen research on the effect of environmental, social, and governance factors on investment performance and investor decision-making processes. “By making such a generous commitment today to support research into sustainable finance, our long-standing partner is giving us the means to develop innovative solutions to meet the challenges facing society today,” said HEC Montréal Foundation President Michel Patry.
